Barn at Boyden Farm Wedding :: Jenna & Tim

Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0001-1

Getting lost in the woods isn’t always a bad thing, and sometimes it’s on purpose. It was definitely Tim’s plan to get “lost” in the woods when he proposed to Jenna during a moon-lit snowshoe excursion at Catamount.

At one point in their walk, Jenna was ahead of Tim on the path, thinking they were lost. She recalls exclaiming to him “Tim! Where are we! I don’t know where we are!” But this was all part of Tim’s plan, because when Jenna turned around, Tim was down on one knee (and he had been there for awhile, patiently waiting for Jenna to turnaround)!

For such a low-key, outdoors-loving couple, this proposal was absolutely perfect. As Jenna said, “it was very much us.”

And, just like Tim’s proposal, Jenna and Tim’s wedding was low-key, fun, and set in a beautiful, rustic backdrop. The ceremony and reception were held at the lovely Barn at Boyden Farm in Cambridge, Vermont, on August 8, 2015.

We started the day with the Jenna and the ladies as they got ready at a Sterling Ridge cabin, which had a great view of a pond. Quarters were tight, so Jenna got dressed on a light-filled porch. The whole day had such an easy-going feeling to it, with guests arriving in school buses and the relaxed cocktail hour. Jenna and Tim even got in all their formal family portraits before the ceremony began! The reception was a blast – everyone enjoyed the bucolic setting, and the dance floor was occupied most of the night.

I loved these shirts worn by Let’s Pretend Catering – we worked with them for our wedding and they are always top notch!

Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0024 Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0023 I loved when Jenna’s Brother Parker spontaneously hugged Tim when he reached the end of the aisle – it was so genuine and everyone uttered a collective “awww”Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0025 Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0026 Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0027 Barn-at-Boyden-Farm-Wedding-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0028

I also loved Jenna’s expression here – she was so clearly excited to be marrying Tim!

Instead of a guest book Jenna purchased skis and had people sign them -a very creative idea and a nod to Tim’s love of “gear”!!

Vermont Outdoor Wedding :: Abe & Mary

Vermont-outdoor-wedding-Orchard-Cove-photography-WEB_0013

Abe and Mary were married on August 1st in a private ceremony and reception at their family home.

These two grew up only about two miles away from each other and had so many chances to meet, but they somehow managed to miss each other until 2009 during their second year of teaching. Hilariously, they had both just graduated college and interviewed for the same job without meeting, and it was not until he was hired as for Kindergarten and she was working in the 6th grade at a different school that they finally crossed paths. The two schools were sharing some space, and that’s when, at last, Abe spotted her.

He brought a random book up to her classroom and said when he left, “I’ll just write my name in the book so you can remember to give it back to me.” She didn’t pick up on the subtle hint, but over time, they spent more time together as they discovered they shared pediatricians, favorite delis, and so on! The rest is history.

We started our day at Stratton with Mary and her ladies while the second shooter, Andi Walpurgis, met up with the guys at a different condo.

The handsome groom, who I thought was a double for Jason Segel!

Mary has a super close relationship with her three brothers, and they clearly adore her. Here, Mary is seeing them for the first time, and her brother, Thomson, decided to lighten the mood as Mary was starting to tear up

Vermont-outdoor-wedding-Orchard-Cove-photography-WEB_0008

We drove to Mary’s family’s home and took pictures down by the water for their first look. We then got some bridal party and family portraits, and right on schedule, the school bus showed up with all the guests, and Mary scurried inside!

Heading to the 1st look!

The procession walked down the hill from the tent, and once we were there, the ceremony was officiated by a close friend of the couple’s.

Mary’s mom put in so much work to make the property wedding-ready, and it was so great to see everything go off without a hitch!

For the final dance, the band played “Hallelujah,” and their guests formed a circle around Mary & Abe to send them off into their married life—it is a moment I know they’ll never forget.

Mary-Abe-Testimonial-0003
Amanda,
Multiple bridesmaids — and I!– commented that you were the best they’ve ever worked with. Thank you! You took time to get to know us before the wedding so that there was “zero fuss” the day of the wedding. Plus, you are so nice and unobtrusive! Absolutely perfect balance of intruding when you needed to and stepping back when you needed to. We also all LOVED that you were able to get the portraits taken in as little time as possible, and they all turned out wonderfully. Lastly, you clearly know what you’re doing. You took the time to make us “take a moment” during the Reception so we could be by ourselves and catch our breath. Very smart, and we appreciated it.
